They were the BEST!! Pricey, but worth EVERY cent! The ceremony music was beautiful- whatever I wanted. Everyone was on the dancefloor the whole time at the reception, and people still talk about it months later. They promise to rock the house and they deliver! I would hire them again in a heartbeat!

AWESOME!!!!! Every boastful comment Steve tells you is true and more. 4 months after the wedding and people are still talking about our band. Came recommended by two other couples and the band for sure exceeded any expectation we had for them. The band made our wedding reception. The dance floor was packed for 4 hours from beginning to end. The band was fun, energetic, interactive and overall the best wedding band any of us had ever seen.

The Steve Edwards band is SUCH a riot. I was slightly worried about what would happen if people didnt get up to dance at our wedding, but with SEO, that was NEVER a problem. Everyone danced the night away and just had such a blast. Steve was even nice enough to learn a brand new song for our first dance which allowed us to Two Step :) I couldnt be happier and loved what a party Steve Edwards Orchestra made our wedding!

We booked a string quartet for our ceremony, a jazz piano trio for cocktails, the trio plus three violins for dinner and the full thirteen-piece orchestra for dancing. The quartet and trio were both good. The sextet we had for dinner was great – they played standards and classical interpretations of more modern songs (e.g., In My Life by the Beatles). The orchestra was fantastic. We got so many compliments on them and the dance floor was packed the whole night. They were a little difficult to communicate with (e.g., it took a long time to get the contract from them, they didn’t respond to our emails promptly or sometimes would respond but not to the substantive questions in the email; they were much better by phone, however), but I always thought that was just because they're musicians first and business people second. The other thing that is a little different about them than some other bands we talked to is that they did not have a full song list that we could mark with “must play,” “please play” and “do not play” so we had to mark up the limited song list they have online and add our own requests to that. For people who want to have full control over every song the band plays, they are not the band for you, but if you want to have a great band who will keep the dance floor packed and play the kind of music you request, I couldn’t recommend them more highly. I would definitely hire them again.
